Pours deep brown. high in carbonation. thick vanilla colored two finger head. roasty, malty. Ommegang has yet to disappoint me.

I have a question. This may sound dumb but it's just a little confusing to me. Well....first of all, I love this beer. One of my favorites. Anyway, when I'm rating a beer.....let's say the color......is the "color" rating based on how light or dark it is? Or is it based on how pretty or ugly it is? With the smell, is it how good or bad it smells? Or how potent or non potent it smells? Do these questions make sense or am I just a stupid dummy? Pardon my ratings......again, I don't know what they mean. I'll change them once I know.

2014 Vintage

Poured into chalice

A: Pours a deep, hazy mahogany with a tight, fine, khaki colored head and lively carbonation.

S: Oak and cherries on the nose. The cherries blend with dates, raisins and baking spices in aroma and with a slight hint of barnyard funk.

T: Rich and fruit forward, with the Kriek strongly representing itself in the blend. The belgian candi sugar and intense dark malt wrap around your palette like roasted, fruity silk. Rustic yeast flavors pick up in the finish to remind you that this is no Trappist creation.

M: Velvety, with typical Ommegang strong carbonation.

O: Three Philosophers is a Quad away from the pack. The addition of true Belgian Kriek give this brew a really unique twist that makes this beer feel like luxurious desert in a glass. While not strictly true to style, this beer if a must try if you're a fan of all things strong, dark, and Belgian.
